How to Read the Tarot

Begin by brewing a cup of tea,
a nervine, lemon balm or chamomile,
this is after all, your future.
A reading at the dark of the moon is best,
before the night creatures crawl
and bad humours fill the air.
Pick a circular deck, with a fairy-tale motif,
and no reversals.
Hold a question in your heart,
shuffle the cards and place them on the table.
Choose only two.
Like the ancient Israelites,
these are your seer stones, Urim and Thumimm,
black and white, yes or no.
Isn't that all you were asking?

RBG passed
on Rosh Hashanah.
She lives on
as guide, crone, tzaddik,
into this surreal New Year.

promt: surreal---one of my most unfavorite words

The Herbcrafter's Tarot---4 of Fire--Elder--Invoke the aid of holy helpers, like the crone that lives within the elder tree,guarding the portal between the land of the living, and the realm of the dead.

Author's Note: I have an elderberry plant in my wee garden, not yet a tree. Today I will leave offerings to RBG, magnificent crone.

for plenary indulgences.

coated in grey ash
gathered for a bitter pie
garnished with afflicted fruit

Sofkee Spoon

My wooden sofkee spoon
tells tales,
a homespun gest.
Adventures of soup, stew,
porridge and casseroles.

Author's Note: In Seminole and Miccosukee culture sofkee is a traditional porridge/gruel always kept simmering in a large pot. It is served with a long-handled wooden sofkee spoon.

The Cook's Tarot--6 of Wands--Be humble in victory. You had help.

Mary, Mother of All

I was an unwed mother, refugee, brown skinned Jew.
The ancient Church Fathers crowned me Queen of Heaven.

My wings are made of rainbows.
I soar above
dun colored mud fields
of virus, of politics
avoiding conflict's sting.
I delight
in wind, rain, stars, and clouds.
I leave, in my wake
colorful contrails.

My lodestar
is small
acts of kindness
navigating a path
of scattered poems
brought by wind storms.

He said, "Your aura is cesious".
I whispered,
"It smells like rain
in blue grey skies
dark enough

heralded a paradigm shift.
Today, we know
it went backwards.
